Gray hair is not always a sign of aging. It is often indicative of a health problem, warned medical consultant Parvinder Sagu.
Loss of hair color can indicate a thyroid disorder that can lead to negative health effects. Therefore, it is important to identify the disease at an early stage. Vitamin B deficiency can also provoke gray hair. Sources of this element are eggs, vegetables, fruits, seeds, and nuts, as well as whole grains.
In addition to these reasons, gray hair can be a symptom of an autoimmune disease such as neurofibromatosis, alopecia areata, or tuberous sclerosis, Sagu noted. To identify health problems, the medical consultant advised seeing a doctor.
Hair that has lost color can recover on vacation. This is facilitated by a decrease in stress levels, said, American researchers.
